Every year, each island of the Indian Ocean stages a cultural event that appears on the organisation’s official calendar of events and for the Seychelles it is their annual Carnival International de Victoria.
This carnival remains unique because it is the only carnival where all the best and most popular carnivals of the world parade together, followed by cultural troupes from the Community of Nations.
This mid-ocean carnival in the tropics has grown in size, since its inaugural edition in 2004 and now it has become the single biggest event staged in Seychelles.
At the recent Ministerial meeting of the Vanilla Islands held in Port Louis in Mauritius, the list of the events that appear on the organisation’s calendar of events was tabled and the support for the April 22 Carnaval International de Victoria was echoed by all present.
Both Xavier-Luc Duval, the Deputy Prime Minister of Mauritius and Didier Robert, the President of the Regional Council of Reunion gave their ‘thumbs up’ for the Vanilla Islands coming event in Seychelles.
Alain St.Ange, the Seychelles Minister responsible for Tourism and Culture said to the press in Mauritius that he was delighted to see that the Indian Ocean Islands continue to support the Seychelles event that appear on the Vanilla Islands calendar of events.
“I thank both Mauritius and Reunion for their continued support” Minister St.Ange said.
The first of its kind, the carnival, which has grown every year, has come to be known as the “Carnival of Carnivals.”
The carnival is a unique world event for bringing nations together where different cultures are respected as well as celebrated.
Seychelles Carnival has captured the interest of leaders, tourism officials and travellers alike from the world over. As word spreads near and far among VIPs, media sources and curious tourists, the carnival has continued to get more popular each year.
As the world awaits the 2016 Seychelles Carnival, a clearer picture has emerged that is the hope that the Seychelles International Carnival will eventually be seen as a symbol for world peace.
